I have wanted to shoot at the Sleeping Bear Sand Dune National Lakeshore and the cherry trees for a few years and finally was able to do so a couple weeks ago! This session was a dream and I am so excited for this couples big day next year!

Winter can be cold but oh so beautiful! Enjoy a little glimpse into a downtown Detroit winter Session! When the trees are with out leaves, what better than a beautiful city scape!
This couple was not only fun and so in love but they were super stylish! I love so much when my clients dress up and make the day more than just photos. From the moment we chatted I knew this couple would be fantastic to work with and I am so excited to capture their big day next year!
I love when my clients bring who they are to their sessions. This couple loves their dog and as fur baby parents wanted to incorporate him into their session, isn't he the cutest! As we walked into the park I realized this was not only a pretty park but the park where they were engaged, ahh love that! We made sure we sat on the same bench where it all took place and had some great laughs reminiscing about that night they shared together. Between the cute pup and awesome couple this session was a perfect success! Thanks guys, cannot wait to photograph your big day next wedding season!
Wow, I loved this session!! The snow and christmas lights made for some extra magical details, don't you think!? This couple was fun, cute and so sweet! With it being the day before the first big snow storm the temps were pretty chilly and the winds were coming in pretty quickly, but they hung in there! Heart Plaza in downtown Detroit was a perfect place to start our session, as we got a colder we moved towards the library. Taking a break from the cold we were able to get some different shots inside and then back out to the DIA, which is one of my favorite places!! The white marble of the DIA building is almost as magical as the snowy grounds! This ranks up there with my fav's!! I can not wait to photograph their beautiful big day this next season!!
This location and couple could not have been any better! I had a blast with these two, and even though it was so freezing cold that I literally wore snow gear, it's a favorite to date! The couple were such troopers! Gina was a bridesmaid in another wedding I did few years ago, so when she called to book me I was already excited. Now after their session, I am even more so! Thank you guys for a great time - you rocked! I can not wait to photograph your big day next year!!
Oh my, how stunning is this bride-to-be!? Her fiance isn't too shabby either! The temps were so cold this day and we even had a few flurries, but not even that was going to stop this couple from doing their engagement session! From the location to the outfits, everything was perfect! Thank you guys for sticking it out through the snow and cold! Can not wait for your wedding next season!!
This couple is the sweetest and so much fun! I Have wanted to shoot at the DIA for a while and was so excited! Jennifer and David were actually engaged here at the DIA, so what better place to do their engagement photos! Laughing with my clients is my favorite, we did a lot of that during our session. Guys, I can not wait to finish up this year with your beautiful winter wedding!!
Back in 2009, mutual friends kept suggesting that Ashley and Billy should date each other, and boy are we glad they did! They couldn’t be more perfect for each other! I’m so glad they chose to have a unique session that incorporated their love for Detroit sports. Ashley and Billy were so cute playing with each other down by Comerica Park and Ford Field! We finished the session on a romantic note up on a rooftop (not far from where Billy proposed to Ashley this summer) with beautiful downtown Detroit as the backdrop. I cannot wait to party with their family and friends next fall at their wedding!
This couple, these locations, the light, perfection! I was so happy we had good weather after having to reschedule this session from the previous month! This couple was such a joy to work with and so fun, I am certain even Garrett had fun! When talking about where we wanted to do this session, Marichelle was very open and trusting, which is always the best. Thank you both so much for hanging out with me! I can not wait till your wedding next year!
How adorable are these three?! Their pup was so good and loved running around the property. We had a blast walking through the trails and enjoying the scenic view of the lake. When the couple contacted me about their wedding we totally had the same taste and hit it off so perfectly, so when it was the day for our engagement session I was so excited. I had never been to this location, wow, it is truly a place to visit! Not only was this a beautiful place to take in the view, this is where they actually were engaged, isn't that so cool! Thank you guys for sharing your love story, I can not wait to watch the rest of it unfold!
This couple was fun, loving, a totally trusted me and my visions! The property in Casco Michigan was the bride-to-be's parents and was absolutely stunning! When Christina and I were discussing location ideas and looks she wanted, I never thought her own family property could be so perfect! Christina sent me photos about a week before her session of the property at sunset of me to check if it would be ok.... OK?!, It was perfect! So excited, I pulled into the property the evening of our session and it was even better in person, flowers, hills, fields and yummy light! Dylan and Christina were super adorable so it all together made for a pretty epic session and one of my fav's to date! I am so excited to have met this couple and her family and look forward to her wedding next year!
